Our Wassail is back!
An ancient rural English celebration giving fruit growers and pickers the opportunity to drink to the good health of their fruit trees and to an abundant crop in the coming year, as well as bring light, noise and cheer to long, dark winter months.
We will enjoy storytelling, crafts and basket weaving, with a Wassail Master to oversee proceedings.
New this year: the fantastic Age UK Richmond Patch Ukulele Band will play a short set - if you’ve never heard a wassail song played on ukuleles, now is the time to experience it, and join in the singing!
A community event not to be missed, so why not join us as we make noise, make merry and share Mike’s warm spiced apple cider and some tasty snacks.
All are most welcome.
Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy footwear.
The walk will meet at the Vine Road Recreation Ground near the Pavilion.
TICKETS: All proceeds from ticket sales will support our work in conservation and future learning events and we would encourage you, if you can, to pay full price. We do not want cost to be a barrier to our activities, as such we have a limited number of discount concession tickets available, please email [email protected] for details.
To keep up to date with all our events, conservation work and more, become a Barnes Common Friend!
